Facebook Live Tutorial – Nature’s Prints Thank You Card

Create this card with the Nature's Prints Bundle by Stampin' UP! Card by Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

This was the card I created this week on my Facebook Live.  You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.  This features the Nature’s Prints bundle – one that is so beautiful!  I have created several cards with this set, using the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper – in beautiful blues and gray tones – but I wanted to switch it up for today’s Live and use black and white.

I used a Thick Basic White card base and then added a layer of vellum – that I had embossed with the Fern Embossing Folder.  I placed all of the various die cuts – the wreath, the “sprigs” and the stamped images (also die cut) on top of the vellum.  I used glue dots to hold all of the die cuts together to create a focal point – and positioned them to the back of the word label with dimensionals.   I also added a small piece of gingham ribbon – also in black and white!

To finish the card, I added quite a few Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels to add some shimmer.  I added a small strip of the Perfectly Penciled DSP to the inside of the card and also on the flap of an envelope.   I love this DSP – and it seemed to coordinate perfectly with the color scheme I used for my card.

Wild & Sweet Stamp Set – Facebook Live Tutorial

Wild & Sweet Stamp Set – Facebook Live Tutorial

Wild & Sweet Koala Hello You Card by Laura Milligan, Id Rather Bee Stampin

The Wild and Sweet stamp set is  – well, sweet! I love the animals that are portrayed in the stamps.   This card today was inspired by a swap that I received from another demonstrator- I am not sure who that demonstrator is – if it was you, please let me know and I’ll be happy to give you credit! I took the swap card I received and changed up a few components –  I used the Deckled Edge Rectangle dies – they are new and are a great addition to our basic shapes of dies.  I think these will be a “go to” for our card making.

Also used is the new Fern embossing folder – and it’s embossed on vellum!  Such a fun look!  The greenery was punched from the Bough Punch – I punched it once in each color – Parakeet Party and Evening Evergreen, and used one of each color to frame the stamped image.  The word is stamped on a small circle cropped from the new Stylish Shapes dies – another set of dies that I have already used a ton!

This was the card I created this week on my Facebook Live.  You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

It’s Time for a Cup of Tea Card Trio – Facebook Live Tutorial

Thank You For Your Friendship Time for Tea Card by Laura Milligan, I'd Rather Bee Stampin' Facebook Live Tutorial

I did a Facebook Live yesterday and featured the Cup of Tea Suite of products – I know everyone is loving this suite! The card I made today is very quick, easy to duplicate yet so cute!  Sometimes we need something that is easy to make – this card fits the bill!  You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

Measurements for this card are:

Thick Basic White Card Base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″

DSP –  4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″  of your choice of any pattern in the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper Stack –  for the card below, I selected the Sweet Sorbel floral pattern – and used the same color for the tea cup – stamping the cup stamp onto Sweet Sorbet cardstock.

Thank You For Your Friendship Time for Tea Card by Laura Milligan, I'd Rather Bee Stampin' - Facebook Live Tutorial

The leaves/stems and flowers were stamped on a Basic White panel measuring 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.

I used a small piece of Basic White to stamp the little sentiment and cropped it with the little coordinating die from the bundle.

Which is your favorite?  The Sweet Sorbet, the Starry Sky or the Orchid Oasis version?  I think they are all pretty cute!

A Nature’s Print Fun Fold Facebook Live!

A Nature’s Print Fun Fold Facebook Live!

create-a-fun fold card-Nature's Prints-Stampin' Up!-Laura Milligan-Demonstrator

I did a Facebook Live yesterday and featured the Nature’s Prints Bundle and the NEW Orchid Oasis In Color. You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

This is a quick but fun card to make and wow am I loving that Orchid Oasis color! It’s always fun to switch up a card – and try a different layout at times.

This card goes together quickly – I started with a panel of Orchid Oasis, cut 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. This is my card base.

I cut two pieces of the In Color Designer Series paper to 1 1/2″ x 4″, and placed these on the card front.

Next panel is Orchid Oasis – cut 3″  x 4 3/4″ and scored along the longer side at 1/2″.   I folded this and attached is to the card base – centering it.  I adhered a piece of DSP measuring 2 3/4″ x 4 to the front of this panel.

The next panel I added was a piece of Basic White measuring 2 7/8″ x 4.  I attached this below the Orchid Oasis folded panel.  This is where you would add a greeting and sign the card.

For the focal point of my card, I stamped the leafy spray and the words onto Basic White with Orchid Oasis ink and cropped them out with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  I adhered them to the card front with dimensionals, adding some ribbon and matte dots for embellishment.   Such a fun layout – I hope you will give it a try!

A Kite Delight Happy Birthday Card & Facebook Tutorial

A Kite Delight Happy Birthday Card & Facebook Tutorial

create-a-whimsical-hand stamped card-with-Kite Delight Stamp Set-Stampin' Up!- Laura Milligan-Demonstrator

I did a Facebook Live yesterday and featured the Kite Delight stamp set. You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

I love this card and the creative way to use the Basic Borders die to create clouds!  To create this look, I used one panel of Thick Basic White – cut 3″ x 5 1/2″ – and positioned the cloud die slightly left of center.  I ran this through my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and the end result was two panels with cloud like edges.  So cute!

Here is the recording of the Facebook Live:  Whether you are watching the replay or the recording via my youtube channel, please leave a comment and subscribe! Your name will be entered for a drawing of the projects I create – winners get a project mailed to them!

I used the wonderful Abstract Beauty Designer Series Specialty Paper Pack for my back ground panel – I love all those colors popping up behind the clouds!  I also stamped on the DSP with my words and also for my kite.  The kite was easy to snip out with my Paper Snips.

Don’t miss the Abstract Beauty Paper – it’s a pack full of a wide array of patterns and colors with both large and small gold accents.  The paper in the pack measures 4″ x 6″ – first time we have had a DSP in that size.  The 4″ wide is perfect for card fronts – for my card today I just used my paper trimmer to cut off half an inch from the 6″ length and I had the perfect size for the card front!

I like to switch things up sometimes by stamping on Designer Series Paper – it’s a fun look!

create-a-kite-card-with-Kite Delight-Laura Milligan- Demonstraotr-Stampin' Up!-

To finish my card, I used the Adhesive Backed Hexagon embellishments to accent the tail of the kite!  Love this card and hope you do as well!  It just makes me happy – the kite, the clouds and the bright cheerful DSP!

A Speedy Recovery Card and Facebook Live Tutorial

A Speedy Recovery Card and Facebook Live Tutorial

create-a-hand-stamped-speedy recovery-get well-card-Laura Milligan-Stampin' Up!-Demonstrator

I did a Facebook Live yesterday and featured the Speedy Recovery stamp set. You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

The card I made used the sweet new Speedy Recovery Stamp set – it’s so cute – and I love the stamps in this set – they stamp beautifully!

I used a Thick Basic White card base, and then added a strip of Orchid Oasis DSP measuring 2″ x 4″ and attached it to the card base. I stamped the images onto a Basic White panel measuring 2 3/4″ x 4″, using Orchid Oasis ink.  The kleenex box is so cute, right?  It actually stamps as you see it –  no coloring needed – I stamped this and then used my Paper Snips to cut it out, positioning it onto the card front with dimensionals.

Here is the recording of the Facebook Live:  Whether you are watching the replay or the recording via my youtube channel, please leave a comment and subscribe! Your name will be entered for a drawing of the projects I create – winners get a project mailed to them!

Here’s a peek at the inside of the card –  a simple greeting – and I couldn’t resist stamping the spoon – so cute!  To finish the card, I added a white bow and some In Color Matte Decorative Dots.
